Rule Brittania - Where Britain Stands in the World of Politics

By Jennifer and AMY

Our country stands strong in the world today.

But is it crumbling? With the latest fallouts between the US and Russia, will Theresa May be able to remain "strong and stable"?

BREXIT FALLOUTS

On the 23rd June 2016, Britain held a revolutionary referendum vote. The question roaming everyone's heads was 'do we have a future in the EU?'. The next day, we all woke up to the news. 52% to leave, 48% to stay. That's it, Brexit had officially begun. As we all know, David Cameron had been our Prime Minister through it all. With the pressures of the leave and his opinions towards the situation, he decided to step down as PM, paving the way for Theresa May. Next year, on the 29th March at 11pm we would have officially left the EU. There will be a two-year transition period until the 31st December 2020, where there will be free movement, but abiding by new laws from Brussels. How will this affect our future relations? They are uncertain due to the secrecy of negotiations.


In 2016, 43% of UK exports went to EU countries. 54% of our imports came from countries within the EU. This has been declining since peak in 2002, and we also had a negative trade balance in 2016 of £157.96billion. Will this negative impact keep on declining? Or will it increase?

RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHER WORLD LEADERS

Following the Russian nerve agent attack, countries and their leaders have become hostile. Allies have been turned upside down, and what we thought we knew, no more. Trump has publically backed up Theresa May in her decision to expel 23 Russian diplomats. With this new public relationship, will Britain’s people turn their backs towards May? In response, only today, the Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, has stated that Russia will expel British diplomat ‘soon’. This follows his statement calling Theresa May’s allegations towards the scandal ‘insane’. As well as this, Lavrov has explained that partly the reason for this action is the UK’s approach to problems faced over Brexit.

Trump took it upon himself earlier in his presidency to tweet that Nigel Farage, ex UKIP leader, should be the UK’s ambassador for the US and that “he would do a great job!”. However, Downing Street stated that “there is no vacancy for this role”. Does this trouble the waters? How does this affect the British society’s views to the political system we run in the UK?


WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

Britain has always had a history of strength and power due to its overwhelming effect on the Commonwealth and the British Empire. We have the 5th strongest military, no matter if we leave or stay, things will be okay. We as a country can stand “strong and stable”.

“Though she be but little, she is fierce” (William Shakespeare).
